7:52 pm
the city will finally endorse the non off leash.org park it is a people park bus a de facto dog park we hope this will help the neighborhood so in general it is a good project one of the things we discussed we didn't feel was happening it the on site affordable housing we ask we would like to have that in our neighborhoods specifically because the neighborhood is becoming very you know, if you will, upscale nothing affordable so to keep affordable housing but i'm sure they'll continue to work without and it will be whatever it is so i think a that's about it in general we're happy about the project they've been great to work with and we're looking at
7:53 pm
to it going forward. >> thank you. >> next speaker. >> good evening, commissioners joel electric local 6 i'm speaking in favor of two projects with that said, i'm having more taking points i'm familiar with the site i was employed on a project on third and had lunch in the park this project is definitely desirable and necessary we've reached out to avalon bay through the dna we're confident it will assist local businesses and contractors if san francisco we'll be urging
7:54 pm
local electricians in san francisco and spend their money in san francisco and awe prince and funding our program in if the local 6 my own hauling hall and i'm in favor of the project i courage our support in pushing it through thank you. >> thank you is there any additional public comment seen none, public comment is closed. commissioner moore. >> when we have a project of this size and everything agrees i can only say congratulations to all it is hatred to bring a big project for the record in a collaborative and supportive effort i couldn't be more happy
7:55 pm
particularly today to say this is when i'd like to add i believe this project is creative and whimsical and the reason why i'm saying that is the following we have a variety of for large projects a variety of building massing and building expression we have a whole new convenient calorie that gives us a sense of place and emphasis on trying large open space together with streetscaping improvements which in an area we're going to have a lot of changes and i couldn't be happier i would consider living there that's not in the cards having said that, i want to ask
7:56 pm
the folks one question your facade the west common west facing facade looking at towards the freeway is a tenth of a mile-long i have a concern that particular facade didn't have a civic diverse enough expression he while we're experiencing it on the freeway driving i want it to be the same architecture i want to know there's a residential building on the other side that has expression there's a civic side i don't see here i want to ask to make it more of a two sided building i believe that freeway architecture unfortunately, we have 2 freeway architecture by needs to have a user friendly
7:57 pm
side i understand the rooms that are facing it you have a are corridor and access to boormdz to get the but for but i want to see more variety on the ocean side otherwise you have my one hundred percent support to move forward. >> commissioner oh, sorry. >> is it possible to make a quick response. >> go ahead. >> i might put an image up there's an i am in the packet we give this a lot of thought, of course, that piece ties together the building and the building forms an acoustic buffer to the neighborhood but it is where the circulation is on the building what we have come up with at this point though definitely a piece of earth that wraps around
7:58 pm
creating a nice eloquent course element as you come down the freeway so the commissioners we're proposing as you say long commissioner a series of sculpted pieces they breakdown this great color of materials and those openings between them you get light into that calibration the south light and in the evening we've litter that we have to keep in mind that facade is on 25 feet total in terms of what sticks up the freeway there's a lot of vegetation and there's a significant amount of trees but we thought of 43 it in terms of something that is in motion and we're concerned about the impact
7:59 pm
of lights and on the folks up the hill looking down from potrero hill the only place from potrero hill is the residents we couldn't find a view i appreciate the comment but we thought of it as something you view in motion and something pleasant to be in and have a presence in the evening and something also in some sense has kind of what is the right word industrial or whatever quality so that's our reason. >> commissioner johnson. >> thank you very much i'm in port of the project but avalon is working with the developer on their project on indiana my main question and brought this up it is next to
8:00 pm
280 of it gets knocked down we're looking at this building seeing the highway section i appreciate the ventilation facility i understand that the radioactively core spaces are generally not considered an exposure zone for people with forgetting the wording right now and the receptors. >> yes. federally speaking you're not sitting out there all day long but you know on of a person might live they're having an open courtyard and building literally on the other side of
